I made it to a total of 56 shows this year! Not quite as many as last year, but considering my tough year of medical issues, I'd say that's pretty darn good. Not only that, but I also started shooting for Bandsintown and covered a lot more larger-scale shows than in my previous years. So thank you to all of my fans & friends, KDHX & Bandsintown for another great year filled with amazing memories. Looking forward to see what 2016 brings! I've got many new photography projects on the horizon that I hope to begin soon :) Happy Holidays & Cheers to a great 2016!
